  • Who do you think "won" last nights Rep debate?

    Though I am a Libertarian I still am interested in the political events of the partisans. I would vote for Rand Paul since he is closest to my own partisan beliefs of how government should function. I don't think he has any charisma though and doesn't stand a chance in hell. Other than that I thought the big "winners" of last nights debate was Carly and Rubio. They really looked engaged and took it. I'm not sure I would vote for either its way to early.

    Trump showed that in a long time format he has no real ideas. When the discussion turned to Putin, Syria etc he faded. He also through out the terrible Vaccines cause autism comment. Clueless.

      Carly Fiorina kicked @$$.

      Marco Rubio did very well.

      Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee were rock solid.

      Chris Christie did better than I expected.

      John Kasich did OK.

      Jeb Bush and Ben Carson were adequate.

      Scott Walker continues to be underwhelming. I am very surprised by this.

      Rand Paul is on his way to the undercard debate table. He clearly lacks the temperament and maturity to be taken seriously. I like his philosophy... But his debate performances have been abysmal.

      Trump was Trump. Lots of bombast, little substance.

      In the undercard debate, Bobby Jindal did very well and Lindsey Graham made a strong case for being Secretary of State or Defense in the next GOP administration.

      If the Texas GOP primary was today, I would vote for Carly Fiorina.

        Kasich appears the most Levelheaded and Presidential in my opinion. Unfortunately those are criteria seem not to matter much. I think a Kasich/Fiorino ticket would be my choice at this point.

          Carly Fiorina did the best.

          She was followed by Rubio and Bush.

          Trump and Paul tanked.

          Huckabee needs to get off his religious kick or go home.

            Mr Huckabee was rather embarrassing last night.

                Yes, he was. He needs to go home.

                      You failed to listen. He provided an example of someone he knows who had an event with vaccines. He never said he believes immunizations cause Autism, only that he thinks we give too much too soon. Even Ben Carson, the pediatric surgeon, had to agree with his idea to space the immunizations a bit more. I'm not a fan of Trump, but I can't abide people with liberal blinders making unintelligent comments about someone they don't like.

                      Oh, and it's "threw" not through. Can't call it a typo.

                        Trump:

                        "We’ve had so many instances ... a child went to have the vaccine, got very, very sick, and now is autistic."
                        “Autism has become an epidemic, he said. “It has gotten totally out of control.”
                        Vaccines have nothing to do with Autism. He links them. It was an idiotic point. Sorry.

                          Agreed. Correlation is not causation.

                          Also, what gets called "autism" today was just referred to as "having a few quirks" a couple decades ago. More attention = more reported cases.

                            There has not even been shown to have been much correlation either....

                              Apparently the first signs of autism start to show around the time when children receive their first major vaccinations, so the doomsayers claim...
